- The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 1, 2009


If you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show - “America’s Morning News” - here’s what just a few of Tuesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

Robert Spencer, director of JihadWatch.org: With its ongoing quest to win the hearts and minds of Muslims in the U.S., the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division has asked its employees to volunteer to help staff an information booth at the upcoming Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention.

Mr. Spencer charged that the ISNA is aligned with some of the more radical Islamic groups.

Paul Howard, director of the Manhattan Institute’s Center for Medical Progress: Expect a vote sooner rather than later on the Democrats’ health care plan.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, has declared than any health care reform bill must include a new government-run health plan modeled after Medicare, Mr. Howard added.

Steve Milloy, author of “Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them!”: The so-called anti-global warming bill heads to the Senate for a vote, and its impact could soon be felt by every American - including former Vice President Al Gore, who has not made energy conservation a priority at his Tennessee mansion.

President Obama, meanwhile, is busy changing light bulbs in the White House to be more energy efficient, Mr. Milloy added.

Ed Whelan, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia: Monday was retiring Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter’s final day on the nation’s highest bench.

Justice Souter’s most impressive achievement during his tenure was his refusal to participate in Washington’s social scene, Mr. Whelan said.
